the other side

A few years ago, I thought about taking up kiteboarding because it looked so cool. But I keep putting it off because it looks like hard work to me. Or is it? My former diving friends are now kiteboarding friends, and they seem to be addicted to it.

When old scuba diving instructors retire, they take up kiteboarding.

Diablo flies a kite.

And away we go!

This is Bulabog Beach during the northeast monsoon season. It's Boracay, the way it was 20 years ago. It's a short walk from the main beach where most of the resorts, shops and restaurants are, but it's decades in the past.

Everybody is happy and busy, and wet all the time.

Where you can still ride your bike on the sand.

Doesn't it look like fun?

After a while, it started to rain, so we just went inside Timog Kiteboarding Center and ate. Masarap ang itlog mo, Tijo.

Eggs Benedict, a slice of fruit and a mug of coffee. Php190

Timog Kiteboarding Center is located in Bulabog, Boracay Island. You'll know you're in the right place when you see this sticking out of the sea wall.

You know what it is.
